How to Choose a Major
Ultimately the only one who can choose the right major for you is you! However, there are many support services on campus which can facilitate this process. The Pathways Center team can educate you about every major offered at Wartburg and how they can fit with your personal/professional goals.
Connect Majors with Your Passions - Vocational exploration and discernment takes time and effort. To discover one’s calling, you have to reflect on who you are and what you were created for. The answers to these big questions can be uncovered by reflecting on your values, passions, skills, gifts, interests, and a variety of other factors that may point you in the direction of your vocation(s).

Declaring a Major
You declare your major by completing the Declaration of Major form. Your adviser can assist you with filling the form out and they must sign it. If you wish to change majors and thus need a new adviser, you need to inform the Registrar's Office. Although there is not a specific deadline for declaring a major, it is recommended that the sooner one does the better. Typically midway through your second year your adviser will encourage you to begin a serious consideration of what major you want to choose.
